A World of Beer at Toronto’s Festival of Beer

Toronto, ON

The past decade has being one of significant change and growth in the beer category and for beer-lovers worldwide. With new craft brewers, brewpubs, and new styles of beer popping up across the globe, it is almost impossible to keep up with the craze. In 2011, Ontario craft beer sales at the LCBO increased 52.7 % - with so many brands to choose from, it is hard to narrow down your options. This year Toronto’s Festival of Beer will try to help! They have designated a specific section at the festival for New Brews from Canada, along with a showcase of West Coast beers in their World of Beer Pavilion to expand your horizons.  
               Every year at Toronto’s Festival of Beer, the World of Beer Pavilion showcases beer from a specific region, and this year they have focused on the West coast of North America. The West is producing some of the best craft beers out there and is arguably the birthplace of the hop-forward beer trend that is currently taking over the market. This year at Toronto’s Festival of Beer, find West Coast favorites from Granville Island, Central City Brewing Company, Tree Brewery and Rogue Brewery and more. Keep your eyes peeled for Sierra Nevada, Stone Brewing, Firestone Walker and Silver City Brewing popping up in the World of Beer Pavilion as well. You can’t miss these creations from Oregon, BC and California.

In addition to sampling hop-forward flavor of West Coast beers, make sure to try some of the newest beers from Ontario at the New Brews section of TFOB. The New Brews section highlights the freshest and newest brews to hit the Ontario market. This year you can find creations from Toronto’s Snowman Brewing exclusive Gluten-free brewery located in Etobicoke, Silversmith Brewery from Niagara, in addition to Rambling Road from the Brantford area and more!              

Breweries in the New Brews area and the World of Beer Pavilion will be pouring great beer over the course of July 26th-28th at Bandshell Park, Exhibition Place. To gain access to these areas at Toronto’s Festival of Beer, make sure to buy your tickets at
